Trump: Why allow immigrants from ‘shithole countries’?

WASHINGTON (AP) — In bluntly vulgar language, President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “shithole countries” in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

Trump’s contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist. The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome “those who can contribute to our society.”

Trump’s comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants — and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.

  • Most third-world countries have better health care than the U.S, largely due to the fact that we cling to the capitalist system of health-care for profit. It’s a business, like any other enterprise, and everyone has their hand out, from the doctors to the hospitals to the insurers to the drug companies and so on. The whole world knows this, so don’t expect a sudden rush for our shores.
